Winner: Harry Nilsson
J.t. Dockery: Nothing against Drake, but Nilsson, just due to the fact that his music has meant more to me on a day to day basis.
Sab Grey: Drake. I like my sensitive folkies to be posh, English and have an overwhelming sense of entitlement as well as being sadly bat shit crazy.
Jess Bowers: Nilsson. The Point was the soundtrack of my childhood. I've never really "gotten" Drake.
John Venable: I'd vote for Nilsson regardless, but that VW commercial ruined Nick Drake for me for several lifetimes.
Laurie Rollins Anderson: (groaning at the difficulty) Drake. I've often lamented that he wasn't part of my childhood listening.
Jack Livingston: Drake, though he needed more time to prove it. I simply could never take Nilsson seriously......
Nancy Stenhouse Bieringer: Nick Drake - "Pink Moon" is just "it!"
Dug Sohn: Wasn't there an awful Grunge cover of Pink Moon? Nick Drake
Hallie Kinder: Harry. Always and forever.
Greggy Glitterati: Nilsson. Variety is the spice of life.
